  1. 1. Dynamics of net primary production and food availability in the aftermath of the 2004 and 2007 desert locust outbreaks in Niger and Yemen

    Master-uppsats, Lunds universitet/Institutionen för naturgeografi och ekosystemvetenskap

    Författare :Emma Bylund; [2021]
    Nyckelord :geography; GIS; desert locust outbreak; NPP; food availability; livelihood zones; Earth and Environmental Sciences;

    Sammanfattning : The knowledge of desert locust plagues goes back to biblical times but it is just as relevant in 2020 with an ongoing outbreak in East Africa and the Middle East. The locusts pose a threat to agriculture, and by extent food availability, due to their high appetite, diverse diet and ability to migrate long distances in large swarms. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Techno-economic Analysis and Market Potential Study of Solar Heat in Industrial Processes : A Fresnel Direct Steam Generation case study

    Master-uppsats, KTH/Skolan för industriell teknik och management (ITM)

    Författare :Guillermo de Santos López; [2021]
    Nyckelord :Solar heat in industrial processes; techno-economic analysis; market potential; direct steam generation; Fresnel technology;

    Sammanfattning : The industrial sector not only has a big contribution to global emissions but also a low share of renewable energy for heat demand. Knowing that most of the energy consumption in industry is heat and that half of it is at medium-low temperature (below 400 ºC), it is a great market for the integration of solar thermal technologies.

  3. 3. Blue biotechnology : its role in the future of food

    Kandidat-uppsats, SLU/Department of Molecular Sciences

    Författare :Andrea Lundh; [2020]
    Nyckelord :Aquaculture; blue biotechnology; aquatic resources; SDG; sustainable development goals; blue growth; zero hunger; food security; agenda 2030;

    Sammanfattning : To provide healthy food and livelihoods to a growing population on Earth, while environmental issues becoming more adverse, as well as climate change becoming more critical, is one of today’s greatest challenges. By 2015 the United Nations come up with 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDG’s) to tackle global challenges as poverty, global hunger, climate resilience, population growth control, achieving food security, and promotion of sustainable agriculture.

  4. 4. Closed ecological life support systems : cycling of carbon, nitrogen and water

    Kandidat-uppsats, SLU/Dept. of Ecology

    Författare :Hugo Persson; [2020]
    Nyckelord :closed ecological system; cycling; closure; life support; biosphere; CEEF; MELiSSA; Biosphere 2; bioregenerative; CELSS; environmental;

    Sammanfattning : Materially closed life support systems containing biological components that provide atmosphere, food and water for a human crew has been investigated for use in space travel since the 1960s. The internal cycling of organic material is the essence of these systems and their design and function is the question at issue for this thesis, which has been conducted as a literature study.

  5. 5. From Protected to Productive

    Master-uppsats, KTH/Skolan för arkitektur och samhällsbyggnad (ABE)

    Författare :Sonal Takkar; [2020]
    Nyckelord :Stockholm; Archipelago; Islands; Productive Landscape; Local Economy; Collective Production; Self-Sufficiency; Sustainable Development.;

    Sammanfattning : The Stockholm Archipelago has a unique natural landscape - rugged nature that blends with wooded islands, rocky cliffs and sandy beaches enriched by cultural and ecological values. The islands, dating back to the Viking Age are faced with a progressively uneven growth compared to the city developing an inevitable socio-economic dependency on the city core through infrastructural connections.
